Vincent USDOT January 11, 1013 Unable to verify harm

It is interesting that our federal auto safety agency has no information about NYC crash testing partitions. As of December 2015, the TLC, or SOMEBODY, had crash tested 3 of 15 approved models for taxi use in NYC.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission will delay a requirement that yellow cabs must undergo a crash test with the hard, sharp-edged plastic partition in place — a rule approved in 2013 after doctors told the agency that passengers in an accident face a greater risk of head injury.  12/2015

Unable to verify that partitions kill, maim and mutilate people?  Simply click Here to see at footmarker 30:00 plenty of NYC T&LC hearing video testimony about the seriousness of the injuries caused by partition hazards.Again, the USDOT is speaking of 'trading off' occupant safety, which is strictly illegal according to USDOT Chief Counsel Jeffery Miller.
